149: My Unschooler's Homeschool Registration Visit

This week, I'm sharing details of my daughter Gemma-Rose's homeschool registration visit. I discuss the following questions:

  • Can registered homeschoolers unschool?

  • How do we write homeschool plans when we don't know what our unschooling kids will be interested in?

  • How can we fulfil homeschooling registration requirements without forcing kids to learn things they're not interested in? 

  • Is forced learning real learning?

I also talk about:

  • How we might be tempted to push our kids to use their talents or extend their interests.

  • How kids can surprise us. They're often not like us. They do things on their own timetables and not ours.

And I share my latest unschooling book news.
